EULESS, Texas, March 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR) today reported a net loss of $12.0 million, or $(0.98) per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $0.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. Included in the fourth quarter 2012 net loss amount was a non-cash loss related to the fair value change in the Company's derivatives of $13.2 million, $0.2 million of expense related to the recently completed relocation of the corporate headquarters to Euless, Texas and $0.2 million of non-cash stock compensation expense. Included in fourth quarter 2011 net income was a non-cash gain related to the fair value change in the Company's derivatives of $3.6 million, $0.4 million of expense related to the departure of our former President and Chief Executive Officer as well as the hiring of our new President and Chief Executive Officer in August 2011, and $0.7 million of non-cash stock compensation expense. Excluding the loss on derivatives, relocation related expenses, and non-cash stock compensation expense, net income and net earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2012 would have been $1.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. Excluding the gain on derivatives, expenses related to the departure of the Company's former President and Chief Executive Officer and the hiring of our new President and Chief Executive Officer, and non-cash stock compensation expense, net loss and net loss per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011 would have been $1.6 million, or $0.14 per diluted share.

William J. Sandbrook, President and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Concrete, stated, "We are pleased with our improved performance in 2012. While much credit goes to generally benign weather patterns and improved construction activity in our markets, our favorable results arose from the hard work, professionalism and commitment of our U.S. Concrete team of dedicated employees."

CHANGE IN SEGMENT REPORTING

During the 4th quarter of 2012 the Company made changes to better align its operating and reportable segments with the overall strategy and the manner in which the business is organized and managed. The Company will report its results across the following segments: (1) ready-mixed concrete and (2) aggregate products.

The previously reported Precast concrete products segment was eliminated when six of the Company's seven precast plants were sold during 2012. The remaining precast plant, as well as other products and services that were previously associated with the "ready-mixed concrete and concrete-related products" segment, are no longer associated with a reportable segment. These other products and services include the Company's building materials stores, hauling operations, lime slurry, Aridus® rapid-drying concrete technology, brokered product sales and recycled aggregates operations.

All historical segment results have been reclassified to conform with these changes and segment results for the quarters and full years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012 are shown in the included tables below.

FOURTH QUARTER 2012 RESULTS

Consolidated revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 14.5% to $134.9 million, compared to $117.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenue from the ready-mixed concrete segment increased $17.5 million, or 16.8%, to $121.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $103.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company's ready-mixed sales volume for the fourth quarter of 2012 was approximately 1.23 million cubic yards, up 15.7% from the 1.06 million cubic yards of ready-mixed concrete we sold in the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company's consolidated average sales price per cubic yard of ready-mixed concrete increased 1.1% during the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Aggregate products segment revenue increased $2.2 million, or 34.2%, to $8.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $6.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2011.

The Company's adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was $5.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $4.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA margin, which is adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue, for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 4.3 percent, compared to 3.9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations plus expense (benefit) for income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation, depletion and amortization, and excludes non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative loss (income), loss on extinguishment of debt, expense related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters, and expenses related to the departure of the Company's former President and Chief Executive Officer and the hiring of the new President and CEO. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. For a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and net debt (which are other non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release) to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the attached "Additional Statistics" schedule.

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") were approximately $16.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $12.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The higher costs for the fourth quarter of 2012 were primarily due to expenses related to the recently completed relocation of the corporate headquarters, incentive compensation accruals, professional fees related to acquisition and divestiture activities and medical insurance costs.

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a $13.2 million non-cash loss on derivatives. This non-cash loss was comprised of $10.9 million from fair value changes in the embedded derivative related to the Company's Convertible Notes and $2.3 million from fair value changes in the Company's warrants. This is compared to a non-cash gain of $3.6 million during the fourth quarter of 2011. These changes are due primarily to the increase in the price of the Company's common stock during the fourth quarter of 2012 and the decrease in the price of the Company's common stock during the fourth quarter of 2011.

The Company provided cash from operations of $18.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $8.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2012 was primarily the result of timing in working capital changes. The Company's free cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $22.4 million, compared to $9.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. We define "free cash flow" as cash provided by (used in) operations less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment, net of proceeds from disposals. Free cash flow for the fourth quarter of 2012 includes $4.3 million in proceeds from the sale of our Arizona pre-cast operations. Capital expenditures increased $3.5 million to $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to $0.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

The Company's net debt at December 31, 2012 was approximately $58.7 million, up $1.8 million from December 31, 2011. We define net debt as total debt, including current maturities and capital lease obligations, minus cash and cash equivalents. The increase in the Company's net debt was due primarily to an increase in the balance of the Convertible Notes from amortization of the discount on the notes and the addition of seller financed debt from acquisitions, partially offset by a decrease in the balance of our revolving credit facility at December 31, 2012. Net debt at December 31, 2012 was comprised of total debt of $63.5 million, less cash and cash equivalents of $4.8 million.

Ready-mix backlog at the end of the fourth quarter of 2012 was 3.1 million yards, up approximately 5.7% compared to the end of the fourth quarter of 2011.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release uses the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA margin," "free cash flow" and "net debt." The impact of non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of the former President and CEO and hiring of new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share also represent non-GAAP financial measures. The Company has included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in this press release because it is widely used by investors for valuation and comparing the Company's financial performance with the performance of other building material companies. The Company also uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of its operations. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash the Company must use to service its debt or pay its income taxes, and thus does not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures. In addition, the Company's presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures that other companies report. The Company considers free cash flow to be an important indicator of its ability to service debt and generate cash for acquisitions and other strategic investments. The Company believes that net debt is useful to investors as a measure of its financial position. The Company presents the impact of non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of the former President and CEO and hiring of new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the fourth quarter of 2012 to the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. See the attached "Additional Statistics" for reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures for the quarters and full years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

ADDITIONAL STATISTICS
(Unaudited)

We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). However, our management believes that certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios, which our management uses in managing our business, may provide users of this financial information additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. See the table below for (1) presentations of our adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and Free Cash Flow for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, and Net Debt as of December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and as of December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011. We have also provided below (1) the impact of non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of our former President and CEO and hiring of new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. We have also shown below certain Ready-Mixed Concrete Statistics for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

We define adjusted EBITDA as our net income (loss) from continuing operations, plus the provision (benefit) for income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation, depletion and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative (income) loss, loss on extinguishment of debt, expense related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expense related to the departure of our former President and CEO and hiring of our new President and CEO. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as the amount determined by dividing adjusted EBITDA by total revenue. We have included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in the accompanying tables because they are widely used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other building material companies. We also use adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash we must use to service our debt or pay our income taxes and thus does not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures. In addition, our presentation of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report.

We have included the impact of non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of our former President and CEO and hiring of our new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.

We define Free Cash Flow as cash provided by (used in) operations less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment, net of disposals. We consider Free Cash Flow to be an important indicator of our ability to service our debt and generate cash for acquisitions and other strategic investments.

We define Net Debt as total debt, including current maturities and capital lease obligations, minus cash and cash equivalents. We believe that Net Debt is useful to investors as a measure of our financial position.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, our reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
